One Photo A Day | Day 248 | Spider And Prey
One photo a day challenge: Day 248.
I was out surveying the yard. Looking for photography subjects.
Photographing various plant life. Using my macro lens.
I eventually made a circuit of our back yard. I settled in to photograph the cluster of pink phlox that have been growing there for years now.
I photographed different compositions of the phlox flowers growing there. Single blossoms and groups of flowers.
Then I noticed this tiny spider on one flower blossom. I watched it and tried to work on getting a good angle.
The wind kept blowing causing the flower and spider to wave in and out of focus.
I was able to intermittently photograph the subject when the breeze subsided.
Then this tiny insect flew right into the spider. And the spider grabbed it. I actually managed to catch a few shots. Right place right time.
The tiny insect escaped the clutches of the spider.
